Evergreen, MT

Just moved in a new house, not sure what this is gowing. Neighbor lady tells me it a tall plant with 1 flower and beautiful.
Spring is finally here so its just coming up, but I would like to know what it is going to be. There is another one coming up beside it.

It's a lily (Lilum species or hybrid) emerging from winter dormancy,

I think it's just too early to tell. I agree with the Lily id from what I see.

by lily we do NOT mean any "daylily" Hemerocallis

Pike Road, AL

Maybe hen and chicks?

Spyguy, the leaves on hen & chicks are mostly thick and succulent but on the plant above they are thin. The plant above should grow rapidly upright shortly.

Louisville, KY(Zone 6b)

Lilium, but there is no way of guessing the variety yet.
